Windows Phone Porn: No Entry Allowed

We haven’t yet enjoyed Windows Phone 7 yet but one thing is now for sure: we, I mean you, won’t be enjoying porn on the devices. At least not with Microsoft’s consent.

nopornMicrosoft has published their (PDF) application certification requirements and among them is a rule the requires clean content. Nothing adult in nature. Here- listen to how they put it:

“Images that are sexually suggestive or provocative, Content that generally falls under the category of pornography, or Content that a reasonable person would consider to be adult or borderline adult content.”

Of course you can root your Android devices and jailbreak your iPhone, so porn lovers and boobie seekers will likely be hard at work to uncover their own ways of gaining additional access. I doubt anyone is devastated by this news since, at the very least, every Windows Phone will have access to the web and let’s face it: that’s already the wild west of adult entertainment and you can get it all for free.

Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything.
